    You maybe dehydrated. Blood flows faster when you have enough fluid in your system. Try drinking 2 large glasses of water about an hour or so before you donate and make sure you eat something before also. I have given blood many times and this helps. And try staying away from a lot of salty products before you donate.

    Not a bad indication that I know of. Some people are just like that. Usually the concern is that platelets are clumping up in the tubing.

    Doesn't mean anything. Could be an indication that you are overweight or didn't get stuck well with the needle.
